Jaguar Bike-a-Thon 2010

Posted By on Thu, Apr 15, 2010 at 2:42 PM

A 300-mile bike-a-thon through Arizona is underway today to show support for bringing back the jaguar as a native species to the American Southwest. The ride started today at 8 a.m. at Pena Blanca Lake. Riders will arrive in Reid Park on Saturday, April 17, around 9:30 a.m.

The bike-a-thon ends in Phoenix at the State Capitol on Thursday, April 22, with a rally at 11 a.m.

Riders will talk with people along the route, carry conservation messages and make short stops at jaguar habitat areas and where the animals face threats.

Interested parties can join the bike-a-thon en route, bike part of the itinerary, drive a support vehicle, host cyclists along the route, donate and more. Visit Jaguar Habitat USA for more information.
